Due to an increase in sales, automotive parts manufacturer Dorman was finding it increasingly difficult to process and ship orders quickly and efficiently. Manual forklift labor struggled to meet the demand, especially during peak seasons, incurring significant costs of $5 million annually.

Dorman replaced its forklifts with Ranger Intralogistics (RIL) bots powered by GreyMatter intelligent orchestration to enable and continuously optimize dock-to-stock, replenishment/shipping, and empty and recycling flow processes.
